They Tried to Reach Me

Soon the beginning was the end
and all of a sudden it was over.
What hadn’t even begun was
killed before it was born.
No one heard the noise that wasn’t made
and everyone heard the silence that
was torn from unborn mouths
and everyone returned the stare
of vacant eyes that weren’t there.
No one said anything, when all was said and done.
Of course no one did anything except do nothing,
nothing at all.
And what was almost something wonderful
of incredible delight
became mundane and normal,
yet seemed just not quite right.
They tried to reach me without success
but I’m not much of a failure.
When they succeeded in failing their quest
I came forward with this tale here.
